Instructor-Led Courses

Crypto Curious Course

Jeremy Cogan Bridging the education gap for new adopters with a single class designed to take them from curious to confident! Those in attendance will learn more about how Bitcoin came to be, what blockchains can be used for, and how decentralization may impact our lives. Start Course

Demystifying Defi

Jeremy Cogan Traditional financial services are coming to the decentralized world. For the first time, we have the technology to conduct banking services without the need for a third party. This is the vision that DeFi brings to reality. Start Course

User-Led Courses

Blockchain 101

Jeremy Cogan Bitcoin, cryptocurrency, and blockchain have emerged as important technological implementations for individuals, governments and corporations alike. The goal of this course is to familiarize students with the unique characteristics of the blockchain and its many iterations and applications, from Bitcoin to smart contracts, decentralized networks, and consensus mechanisms. Start Course

Blockchain Security

ALEX MORRIS One of the primary reasons blockchain systems have received widespread attention has been their ability to provide secure networks without trusting a central entity. Despite this, there are some limitations of the blockchain approach, and understanding them is key to properly deploying new products and solutions. Start Course

Blockchain for Business

Jeremy Cogan Decentralization, immutability and partial transparency all suit the needs of private business. However, exposing proprietary information by utilizing a public blockchain is not an option for these organizations. In this course, we’ll explore how blockchain protocols affect businesses. Additionally, we’ll explore how businesses can utilize the blockchain to solve today and tomorrow’s problems. Start Course

Decentralized Storage

ALEX MORRIS Decentralized Storage offers compelling features for the health & future of the internet! Along with increased resilience from censorship, peer-to-peer protocols become faster as the number of users grows. Conversely, a bottleneck is often created with centralized servers as more users are added. What does this mean for the Decentralized Web? This course will familiarize you with the basics of decentralized storage. Start Course

Ethereum 101

Alex Morris In 2015, a 19-year-old named Vitalik Buterin proposed that in addition to the value transfer functionality, the blockchain could be used to coordinate computers around the world and create a single global computer. In this course, we’ll explore how the concept of a blockchain has evolved, and help you get familiar with the terminology and concepts of decentralized computing with Ethereum as an example. Start Course

Intro to IPFS

ALEX MORRIS In 2017, the Interplanetary File System proposed a new way of sharing media over the internet. Instead of centralized servers, IPFS uses a peer to peer network to host files. In this module, we’ll explore the basics of this new protocol as it compares to traditional options. Start Course

Intro to Private Blockchains

ALEX MORRIS If you’re already familiar with blockchain terminology, this course will teach you about how blockchains can be applied in a private ecosystem. We’ll explore the benefits of private blockchains, and how Hyperledger combines the benefits of distributed ledgers with the predictability of enterprise software. Start Course
